Celebrity Wedding: Lauren Conrad

If you are anything like me you spent your teen years hooked on some of the first reality shows staring the gorgeous Lauren Conrad!! The always fashionable, stylish and loveable star has come a long way from her days on Laguna Beach! The 28-year-old fashion designer and her 34-year-old husband got married along the California Coastline in September. Lauren not only designed her couture custom-designed Badgley Mischka wedding gown (and later changed into a stunning Monique Lulliher dress) but she also styled the whole event! Lauren chose a neutral palette from the bridesmaid dresses to the reception decor. Simple white flowers and greenery were seen in Lauren's bouquet as well as in brass vessels at the ceremony.

The Birthday Lust List

I've been doing a lot of day dreaming lately. Dreaming of travel, dreaming of winter fashion, dreaming of adventure, dreaming of beautiful interiors, dreaming of of winter days curled up in bed with a hot cup of tea and a beautiful book. With my birthday fast approaching (how is it already June!?) and my daydreaming turning to lusting, my birthday wish list is rapidly growing! I believe the rule with daydreaming is that there isn't a dream (or price tag) too big!

Maybe you'll find a little something you'd like to add to your own lust list! Enjoy mine!

Ahhh, beautiful simplicity. I love this Matt Black & Black Leather Watch from  The Horse .

I found this book once in a store in Bangalow, and I was in awe from the moment I picked it up. I've seen Michael Eastman's books before and each book is better than the last. His book 'Vanishing America' is a simply stunning architectural, interior and city scape photography book, taking the reader all over America. But this book has my heart. These beautiful creatures are perfectly captured in this must have Coffee table book.  Horses Photography by Michael Eastman

There is nothing I love more than winter. Especially a white, wintery Christmas, and where better to spend Christmas than in beautiful Scotland! To achieve this one I'm going to need a lotto win, or a miracle!

Celebrity Wedding: Kate Moss

Supermodel Kate Moss wed guitarist Jamie Hince on 11th July 2011, in an afternoon ceremony in Costwolds. Kate, in her own words, described her wedding as ”rock n roll meets the Great Gatsby”.

The reception was held at Kate's £2 million Costwolds home, and saw her change into 3 different outfits through out the night! The changes included a Stella McCartney Oyster Silk Chiffon dress for her first dance, then a micro mini bodycon dress for the after party and a third Stella creation, a three piece off-white wool suit for her going away outfit.
